UNB: As the financial year 2023-24 approaches, concerns are arising over the budget allocation for the education sector. The budget allocation was a subject of discussion among students from Dhaka University, technical institutes, and madrasas.
Iman Islam, a third-year student majoring in accounting at Dhaka University, expressed his thoughts: “Although the budget allocation for the education sector has increased compared to last year’s figures, in the proposed budget, it stands at 1.76 percent of the GDP. While the monetary value has risen compared to last year, it has not increased in real terms. The education sector must receive a larger share of the GDP to effectively address the current challenges.”
